The Huawei Ascend P6, the company’s new flagship device, now has a price tag, after being made official yesterday.

The handset, which has been first seen in a filing with the Chinese version of the FCC, has been made available for pre-order by Carphone Warehouse and, while it’s not as cheap as previously rumored, it still has a price tag that makes it pretty interesting, if you take a look at its specs. The Ascend P6 costs £329.95 SIM-free or around $516.

Carphone Warehouse also offers it free with a monthly deal that starts at £21 per month, and also as an upgrade to your current phone (still free with a plan starting at £21 per month). Another important thing for you to know, if you’re planning on purchasing the Huawei Ascend P6 from Carphone Warehouse, is that the device is expected to arrive on July 4, so you won’t get your hands on it until then.

In terms of colors, you can currently choose between white and black – there’s a pink version, too, but it’s not available for pre-order at Carphone Warehouse just yet.

What do you get for your money? Well, you get a very slim smartphone – at only 6.18 millimeters thickness and with a weight of 120 grams – which also includes some pretty good specs, starting with a 4.7-inch screen with HD resolution.

The device is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Huawei K3V2 processor, as well as 2GB of RAM and has 8GB of internal storage, which can be added to using a microSD card. The rear camera is an 8-megapixel one, while the front one has a 5-megapixel resolution (one that enhances “selfies,” if you’re a fan of that). As for the battery, we’re looking at a 2000mAh one.

What do you think of the Huawei Ascend P6’s price? Will you buy the device?

    Bargain! I would buy it if I was in the market for a new phone. My only concern is that it maybe too thin…

      @500+ price point.. this is not a bargain phone. nothing beats the phone that comes from the makers of Android, when it comes to bargain phone. nexus 4

      • 윌 스튜어트

        In my country its £329. That price is not that bad – Nexus 4 is £240 and the 16 GB is £280, so its in the same range.

          yeah i was talking about the price in dollars. it’s 516 for 8 gb and n4 8gb is somewhere in 330 when tax included so this one is pretty expensive then.
